Hi all, Note: CF10's switching JRun=>Tomcat created this friction. Ex: all-lowercase "localhost:port/cfide/administrator" simply worked in JRun. Adobe, could you please make CF Admin's URL case-insensitive as this ticket requests? Or, at minimum, allow the URL to be typed in ALL-UPPERCASE and all-lowercase? Question: Until this ticket is fixed, is it possible that we can edit web.xml & to allow both "CFIDE/ADMINISTRATOR" & "cfide/administrator"? I tried, unsuccessfully.. (using CF2018 standalone w/ IIS on Win10) Could you please offer some guidance? Thanks!, -Aaron
